Inaugural Compton Bassett 5 miler

Compton Bassett 5

A great new race by Calne Running Club that was also race 2 of the Wiltshire Road Race League.

This was a very well organised and safe race with fab marshals and gresat cake. There was even a bespoke medal with a map of the route on the front.

The whole village seemed to be out supporting at the finish line which gave a nice atmosphere as you crossed the line.

I would definitely do this race again.

Fast & (mostly flat) 5 miler

Compton Bassett 5

The Compton Bassett 5 was a new race for this year and was part of the Wiltshire Road Race league being ran by Calne Running Club & LPS events. 

I managed to get into the race on a last minute transfer and was so pleased to do so as was a great race. As it was part of the WRR there were many fast runners taking part and as a result ai found myself starting off at a faster pace than I would usually do so although not complaining as was really pleased with my time.

The race started and finished at the local village hall where you collected your bib on the day, registration was easy, you could leave your bag there and also reserve cake for afterwards :-) the cake was plentiful and very tasty (there were also hot dogs and burgers afterwards as well). The course itself was easy to navigate and was predominantly flat with a few small sneaky inclines around the countryside. The marshals were very encouraging and there was great crowd supper at the start and end, the rest of the course was a little too remote for people to be standing around. 

The finishers medal is a nice one in the Calne running club colours with the course route on as well as spot prizes at the end. This race had a great atmosphere and was good value for money, I really hope it’s on again next year as I would love to sign up and run this again.
